"Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there." -- Rumi
Dharma Field Meditation and Learning Center is a community dedicated to the practice of Zen and the teachings of Buddhism in a setting not bound to any one culture. We welcome everyone.
FULFILLING OUR MISSION
At our center in Minneapolis we offer daily meditation, sesshins, Dharma talks, social and special events, as well as volunteer opportunities open to all. We also offer a multi-year curriculum in Buddhist studies and study groups which provide a thorough background in the teachings of the Buddha, Zen, and the Wisdom teachings of the Mahayana.
